Why Does My Cat Bite My Nose  - 5 Reasons For It 


If a kitten had been separated too early from its mother and siblings, chances are its social skills, especially in playing, aren’t so refined.


It’s A Kitten Behavior

This nibbling is easily recognizable because it’s not a painful bite directed to hurt you, but it’s far more gentle, sometimes ticklish, and playful.


They Are Showing Affection

Some cats lick their owner’s hair, others will only go for the hands, while some prefer to clean our faces, in which case a nibble is almost unavoidable.


They Are Grooming You

Some cats will meow when they want to be petted, while others might use more “extreme” means to get their human’s immediate attentiveness.


To Get Your Attention

They’ve been conditioned from kittenhood to see it as a normal expression of their playfulness.


They Are Being Playful

It’s part of their grooming behavior where they knead us with their paws and lick and bite our noses to ensure it’s super clean.
